comment Software engineer, already in late thirties, would I have trouble finding a new position?
I couldn't possibly add anything more constructive then what has been added, but based on some real life experience I do know this; when I worked for Symantec, they hired developers in their 50's. The product was written in C++ and it had been in production for about 20 years I believe. A single software developer can pump out huge amounts of improvements to a product in less than a year, so provided you've got good experience, ageism makes no sense to the employer.

comment Is it reasonable to expect that a senior developer knows what OOP design patterns are?
MVC is an architecture, it uses design patterns, but isn't a pattern in itself, right?
